Grayson’s Art Club has been recommissioned by Channel 4.
The second series will see contemporary award-winning artist, writer and broadcaster Grayson Perry return to screens from his studio. Along with his wife, the best-selling author, psychotherapist and broadcaster Philippa Perry.
Grayson’s Art Club was the best performing series from Channel 4’s #StayAtHome Academy programming, attracting over one million viewers per episode.
The second series will air in early 2021. Each episode Grayson will speak with celebrity guests, high-profile artists sharing insights into their processes, and will feature art made by the great British public. Should the social distancing rules permit it, Grayson will travel around the country to meet artists and discuss their artwork.
Grayson Perry said: “I’m so pleased and proud Art Club is coming back, it’s a joyful team effort with the stars being the artists who send in their wonderful works and tell us their stories. Of course, it’s not principally about art, it’s a celebration of life.”
Shaminder Nahal, commissioning editor said: “A can of lager on a bench, a bit of old tat picked up off the street and pressed into clay; a shared cup of tea - Grayson’s Art Club made us look at the small things in life and appreciate them. Grayson also made us think about the big things - and what connects us even in the toughest of times. I’m so looking forward to what Grayson, Philippa, the brilliant Swan Films and the fantastic at-home artists of Britain do next.”
Grayson's Art Club returns early 2021 on Channel 4.
